A Peculiar People
This Month CD / Podcast
1 Peter 2:9 But ye are a chosen generation, a royal priesthood, an holy nation, a peculiar people; that ye should shew forth the praises of him who hath called you out of darkness into his marvelous light.
Peculiar is a peculiar way for God to want us to be... I looked it up in the dictionary and the word itself means to be unusual, eccentric, and odd. But the dictionary also says peculiar has another meaning; belonging distinctively, exclusively to one person- being special and unique. I believe that is what God meant when He called us a peculiar people. God wants us to be sold out to Him, to be the called out ones of the Church! We are to take the Gospel message with us everywhere we go and share it with whosoever we can. It is time for us to be bold about our faith and to share it with others!
This month’s CD is what it is going to take to wake America up! Hell is No Joke, This is some strong preaching and it’s time to wake up America. The Christians who are born again need to get a urgency in there walk. In 1963 one woman ( I won’t even mention her name) got the Bible thrown out of our public schools. Satan will use every means and anybody he can to destroy America. When the Bible was taken out of our schools, I believe that was the beginning of the take over of our children’s minds. We all sit in our living rooms and watch in horror as our streets in America are looted and wonder what can we do about it. It’s time for Christians to quit playing Church and be the Church.
People do not want to hear about Jesus Christ, they want to see Jesus Christ. People are looking for someone who is real about their faith. Christians have been given the most powerful force in the universe. God sent His Holy Spirit to come live in each one of us when we are saved. The Holy Spirit empowers us to communicate, to be God’s light in someone’s dark world. We as Christians may be the only bible some people ever read. Each one of us can be Jesus to someone without hope. We may not be able to reach everyone, but we sure can make a difference to those we do reach.
When we are saved we become a peculiar people. That doesn’t mean we have to be weird or crazy, but it does mean we are to be sold out to one person, and that one person is Jesus. We are special and unique and Jesus has a purpose and plan for our lives. God Gave you a fingerprint that no one else has so you could leave an imprint on others that no one else can! We have to reach out, or get out of our comfort zone. Christians are like rubber bands, God wants to stretch us and use us in ways we never thought or dreamed possible.
Matthew 5 14-16 says “You are the light of the world. A city that is set on a hill cannot be hidden. Nor do they light a lamp and put it under a basket, but on a lampstand, and it gives light to all who are in the house. Let your light so shine before men, that they may see your good works and glorify your Father in heaven. We are to be a light, shining the light of the Gospel message everywhere we go. It doesn’t matter if we are at Church, school, home, or work. We are to be witnesses to whosoever, whenever and wherever. Hide it under a bushel, NO! Let your light so shine, pointing OTHERS to Jesus!

I logged over 4 million miles as a truck driver from 1972 - 2007 and I have written a lot of it in my songs. God has taken me off the road and put me into full time ministry, but I still have a heart for all you drivers out there.
